My Caddy

Are you a coupon-er?

No I don't mean like the kind you see on Extreme Couponing I mean the fun kind.

A MALL QUEEN COUPON-ER!

Well I am and I got overwhelmed with all the coupons I had. They didn't fit in my wallet, especially once I added all the credit cards I had to have for each store. I came up with a "Coupon, Credit Card Caddy" that works great for me.
I still use my wallet, the caddy is just for the extras. Sometimes I even take it out and leave it at home (when I know I won't be shopping). I DON'T believe in having credit card DEBT, I just have the cc from stores to receive better points and coupons. Here's how I organize mine...
 My categories are listed below. Of course make yours to fit your shopping interests.

Sports - Academy, Lids, Foot Locker, Finish Line, Champs, MC Sports
Big Box - Wal-Mart, Lowe's, Target, K-Mart, Staples
Dept Store - Dillard's, Macy's, JCPenney, Sears
Favs - Loft & Victoria's Secret
Eat Out - Any food coupons or gift cards
Gift Cards - GC for massage, pedicure... anything I might happen to have
Misc - Stores I don't shop as often, Pier 1, Maurices, Anthro, Old Navy, Gap
 The contents of each pocket often change. I put coupons, credit cards, gift cards and store credits in this caddy. This system has worked for me several years now, try it and see what you think. You can buy your own caddy at any store that carries office supplies and Staples now carries a Martha Stewart brand that is adorable. Let me know if you make one and if it works for you! Enjoy :)
